Because her mom and I have been best friends since the 5th grade, I have know Kennedy since she was born. Her mom and I grew up together, and now our kids our growing up together. Kennedy knew that she wanted sunflowers in her pictures, so the search was on to find some. I asked other photographers in town if they knew of any locations and talked to my dad to have him on the look out while he drove to work (about 90 minutes away).  As you can see, he was successful in the search and it turned out to be an amazing senior session! Nearby was a spot I wanted to use with water.  Normally there are large rocks to use, but the water was so high this year that you couldn’t even see the rocks! Drift wood was all over the beach though, so we utilized that to give the shots some texture. The second location Kennedy decided she wanted to have was the Badlands. We were half way there when I got a text from Kennedy that she forgot her dress and had to run back for it. Her mom, Mandy, hurried and we only lost 20 minutes, still allowing us plenty of time for everything we wanted to do. Both sessions had amazing results and culling the picture down wasn’t easy! Here’s a few questions I had Kennedy answer. It’s always so fun to learn a little more about my seniors (even the ones I’ve known forever).
